Is anyone using this bar ? If so how does it compare in shape to the 3T Ergonova and the FSA K-Force compact ?

From what I can tell from description and pics it seems pretty close but with a round top ?

Thanks!

I've been using a pair in 44cm width. (had the alloy version previously)
Not bad weight wise (212g in 44) and reasonably comfortable. The reach is quite a bit shorter than the 3T (and I think the FSA as well) and the drop is a bit deeper.

when you say the reach is shorter you are comparing to the Ergonova ?

Yes, with a flat transition to the hoods it's probably 10-12mm shorter on the Ritchey bar.

OK thanks. I have noticed that the FSA compact WingPro or KForce (as I have both as well) has a shorter reach than the Ergonova even though on paper they do not.
